Having read about fifteen of the series I can say that the author's writing style of this long-needed account of Chester A. Arthur's obscure Presidency is by far superior to any of the other prominent historians read so far. A very interesting premise is posed by the author that Arthur's support for the Pendleton Act and Civil Service Reform lays the basis for the latter day Progressive movement and growth of governmental sprawl. More of Arthur's interesting personal life should ,however, been included. Once again a tremendous writer in the author--Zachary Karabell.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
